AM Best Comments on Credit Ratings of Markel Corporation and Its Subsidiaries

AM Best has commented that the Credit Ratings (ratings) of Markel Corporation [NYSE: MKL] (headquartered in Richmond, VA) and its insurance operating subsidiaries are unchanged by the company’s statement that it is fully cooperating with inquiries received from U.S. and Bermuda authorities regarding loss reserves recorded at Markel CATCo Investment Management Ltd. and its subsidiaries in late 2017 and 2018. The inquiry does not involve any other Markel Corporation companies, including any subsidiary rated by AM Best. Markel has retained outside counsel to conduct an internal review.

No rating actions are being taken at this time as the information available does not warrant any such action. AM Best will continue to monitor the situation and take rating action if it becomes appropriate.
